Work time and Melting Crayons

This week we continued participating in Community Helper activities. On Monday afternoon the MWF class even got to see a policeman come visit the school and talk to us! Check out the weekly newsletter for details about our other Community Helper activities. On Friday afternoon the MWF class broke crayons and put them in a mold to make new crayons. We waited patiently while they melted in the oven and then cooled. Then we got to draw with our crayons and everyone got to bring home 2 in their backpacks.

Enjoy your week with no school!

Community Helpers

We kicked off our Community Helpers unit this week. We began by going on a search of the school to find out who works in a school. We each had a list of possible people and we searched the school. We found a teacher, a speech teacher, a secretary, a principal, a custodian and a nurse! At the end of this week, we talked about mail and the post office. We practiced writing and addressing letters. We learned about stamps and return address labels. We even took a walk to the mailbox in the neighborhood!

End of Recycling Unit

Last week we completed our recycling unit. We read the book "Michael Recycle" and then became recycling superheroes ourselves. We flew around the school like superheroes cleaning up parts of the town. Every place in the town we visited, we had to remove a picture. Then we decided if it was recycling or garbage. When we got back to the room, we reviewed everything we found! Please enjoy the pictures!
